Sound — 3
Used a g400 and a small practice amp, it isn't noisy, that's the only thing I liked about the pedal, it cuts out all the hiss, what it replaces it with is something to be desired though. I can't get the sound of anything I would like listening to, it comes close at times but allways falls short, there weren't and different effects, only distortion, small amounts and huge amounts, really shrill.
Overall Impression — 2
I play many styles of music, from classic rock like zep, to cannibal corpse, to the sex pistols, I was hoping maybe this could satisfy one of those areas, but it won't even sound like Nirvana, or Alice in chains, I wish I would have just searched a little harder before buying it, I could have gotten a tube Screamer, or a blues driver. I love how it's built like a brick, I hate bricks. I did compare it too other products, chose this because it was the cheapest.
Reliability & Durability — 3
I could depend on it, it's really sturdy, but so is a brick, there is not much use for keeping either of those around, it's an expensive brick, I wouldn't use it to gig, I would be booed off the stage, I have returned it since anyway. You get what you pay for period.
Ease of Use — 2
It isn't easy to get a good sound out of it, at least it wasn't for me, I never did actually get a good sound, no matter what I did, it was to shrill, somehow it sounds muffled, with high pitches attacking the ears via acoustic shock, not fun. The manual was vauge, and I am not aware on any patches for this, there was a nice picture book with famous guitarists who use DigiTech and think you should too, that was the most interesting this about this product.
